The Lines for UJI TIME DESSERT in Japantown are Out Of Control – Matcha, Black Sesame, and Tofu Ice Cream for the Instagram Generation

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

I’ll tell you, in my day back in the 80’s we went to Thrifty for ten-cent ice cream cones, and that was the way we liked it!

But these days:

“You ever see something on Instagram and think oh I need to get that?  That’s what happened with Uji Time Desserts, I was just searching food pics in San Francisco area since I was visiting soon and saw this fish cone, had to go get it”

As seen underground in the East Mall:

What time is it? It’s UJI TIME:

But be mindful of the all-important “fish cone wait time.”

…Has It All

The stuff we sell is just the best
Passing all consumer test
Days of heaven nights of sin
Voodoo stick and sharks fin
When all around you seems like hell
Just one sip will make you well
Multipurpose in a jar
If you ain’t ill it’ll fix your car
In days of yore for all bad feelings
Washing socks and stripping ceilings
Nowadays its used medicinally
For all known human malady

It was really vile weather
When we got to tarred and feathered
You could hear the six guns sound
As they chased us out of town

Guaranteed don’t you know
Money back?
You’ll get a no!
It’s the one and only medicine show

It’s pretty much the same deal.

But instead of the J-Church, you’ve got the 21 Hayes.

And instead of Buy-Rite ice cream cones being across the street, they’re a few blocks away.

Otherwise it’s pretty much the same deal

All right, have at it.
